Vickery's Crescent Avenue Bar and Grill in Atlanta was opened to the public on August 25th, 1983 by three guys (Sam/ Chip and Jerry) and a dog (Dave) as a place to get a good stiff drink and a cheeseburger. We called the place Vickery's after Margaret Vickery, for whom the house was built. Until the late 1970's, Margaret lived in and operated an antique and fabric shop in the house. Rumor, based on facts, has it that Margaret Mitchell used to visit Margaret Vickery for hours on end (in part because she liked Margaret Vickery and because she hated her own house up the street). Speculation has it that a great deal of "Gone With The Wind" was written in that house.
